Tony Nominee Alison Fraser to Star in Squeamish Off-Broadway
Aaron Mark's new play comes on the heels of Empanada Loca and Another Medea.
All For One Theater is set to present Aaron Mark's Squeamish, starring Alison Fraser (The Secret Garden). The production will begin performances at the Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row October 6, with opening set for October 16. Squeamish will play a limited engagement through November 11.
Squeamish is the tale of an Upper West Side psychoanalyst, a longtime recovering alcoholic whose bloody quest for personal balance begins when she finds herself in the South Plains of Texas, off her meds, after her nephew's suicide. This production is the third psychological horror play from Aaron Mark, following Empanada Loca with Daphne Rubin-Vega and Another Medea with Tom Hewitt. Mark also directs.
Lighting and scenic design are by Sarah Johnston. Michael Growler is the costume consultant.
Alison Fraser was recently seen as Nancy Reagan and Betty Ford in Michael John LaChiusa's First Daughter Suite at the Public Theater, for which she was nominated for both a Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Award. She is a two-time Tony Award nominee for The Secret Garden and Romance/Romance.
